About the Program

State and local paid sick leave and other paid time off developments continue to change at exceptional rates. This webinar provides a general overview of the current paid sick and safe leave, paid personal time off, and COVID-19 paid leave landscapes, and takes a close look at related legislative activity that has occurred across the country during the first half of 2023. This webinar provides an overview of where our patchwork of paid sick leave laws stands, as well as summaries and thoughts on the latest wave of developments from various jurisdictions. 

Topics covered during the webinar include:

    1. Overview of the current nationwide paid sick leave (“PSL”) law landscape.
    2. Highlights of the new Minnesota PSL law – the country’s newest statewide PSL mandate.
    3. Summary of the Bloomington, MN PSL ordinance, which goes into effect on July 1, 2023.
    4. Highlights of the new Illinois Paid Leave for All Workers Act – the country’s newest paid personal time / paid “any reason” leave mandate.
    5. Status of state and local COVID-19 and public health emergency leave mandates, including in California, Colorado, and New York.
    6. Status of the Michigan PSL law, including litigation from earlier this year involving potential amendments to the statewide mandate.
    7. Additional recent PSL expansions and other legislative activity, including in California and Colorado.
